eKal Academy, a digital learning initiative of Kalorex Group (28 years of legacy in education) organised an International Industry Internship Program in Data Analytics for the students of classes IX – XII on 19 August 2023. It was conducted by Mr Pratyush Kundu, Data Analyst at Virtu Financial, New York City. It focused on acquainting students with the basics of data science and analytics, use of python to prepare data and the different career paths.
Mr Pratyush started the session by sharing his experience, qualification, and background of the program. He explained that data science is a multidisciplinary approach. Students were familiarized with the process of data analysis which included data collection, processing, exploration, analysis and insight. Mr Neil and Mr Geet introduced about data indexing and selection on Jupyter. The students also learnt about how to split, apply combine, aggregating and grouping the data. The practical aspect helped the students to get a gist of how to deal with data sets and apply data science for data analysis, data representation, data manipulation, working and creating machine learning models in real life. Towards the end, an activity was conducted where he explained about how to use pandas to create the data.
The virtual internship ended with an interactive session where the students solved their doubts about the use of various features. Students enjoyed the session and relished every pin of the knowledge.
